The real deal?

This drawing was auctioned yesterday. (Heritage Auctions)
Fetched $836.50 (Incl. BP).
Now, it doesn't look like Barks of 1982 vintage at all to me.
Never seen a Barks sketch that looked like this. Even the signature is off.

I'd have to say fake, when it comes to this piece.

The drawing below was withdrawn from the August - September ComicConnect auction. A rather crude fake. Happy it was pulled.

It's all fake. The majority of paintings from many other artists (sold in renowned auctions hosted by Drouot) are forgeries. Usually the fakes are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Auctioneers know that but they don't care as long as it sells.
